    Hi guys, I know there are a number of threads regarding SWTOR and the Mac but I am newbie to the Mac. i would love to play the SWTOR on my recently bought early 2011 MBP. It is the one with i5 @ 2.3ghz. Would my MBP support SWTOR considering this doesn't have a dedicated GPU?

    Also I have Parallels 7 but reading some of these threads I need an authentic copy of Windows 7 if I want to play SWTOR. I this correct?

    Any answers would be appreciated and looking forward to your advice!

    Looks like it.

    You don't want to use parallels for a game like thus, especially given your weak GPU. Use bootcamp.

    Use bootcamp and install a legit version of windows, then you will be able to play the game on med/low settings with the graphics you have in your macbook.
